market panel is ready to go. governor eddie rendell, jimmy and jennifer rubin. every time a local business opens its doors, or makes another sale, or hires another employee, it's not just good for business. it's good for the entire community. at bank of america, we know the impact that local businesses have on communities. that's why we've extended over $4 billion in new credit to local businesses across the country so far this year. because the more we help them, the more we can help make communities stronger. i don't spend money on gasoline. i don't have to use gas. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. drive around town all the time doing errands and never ever have to fill up gas in the city. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. the last time i went to the gas station must have been about three months ago. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. ♪ >>> welcome back. mitt romney says fathead ben bernanke had no choice but to set sail o

republican strategist fred malik and democratic strategist ed rendell. welcome both. fred, you're just back from the republican convention a week ago. what about what mitt romney said to david gregory on "meet the press," talking now about closing tax loopholes for the wealthy. this is only going to renew questions about his own taxes. when are we going to see mitt romney's taxes some. >> i don't think that's really the issue people are interested in. i think what people are focused on is the real economy. i'm a job creator, out there with in my own company, we employ over 30,000 people in a hotel management company we own. i have to tell you there's so many barriers to hiring right now. when you see the unemployment numbers which tell only part of the story, i mean the real unemployment is close to 19% when you take into account people who have quit the work force and people are working a couple days a week instead of a full week. that's what we're going to be focusing on and what the electorate will focus on as we get closer to the election. >> ed rendell, you've been a governor, a mayor,

into the race, vin weber adviser to the romney campaign and governor ed rendell, a political analyst. welcome to you both. vin, this is a big challenge. you know the numbers, the battleground states better than i do. ohio, ohio, ohio. how do you do it if ohio becomes out of reach? >> we're not going to give up on ohio. it is critical. everybody makes that point and it's a valid point. no question the president has had a few good weeks starting with the democratic convention. no question we made a couple mistakes and we're down a little bit. i don't think we're down by quite as much as the polls you cited show. let's not quibble about that. the romney campaign understands where they stand. they've got to refocus and drive home the basic questions that should drive this campaign. the president has some advantages in the polls today. he has one disadvantage going forward which i would simply call reality. we got the august family income report out the other day shows that family income declined again. chairman bernanke and the fed told us last week absent action we're headed toward another reces

to bring in ed rendell, former governor of philadelphia. not an actual owner if i'm right about that, governor rendell. thanks for joining us. >> thanks. i want to say i've been listening the last half hour but it's fascinating. there are essentially quick points i want to make. >> please. >> truth still matters to those who decide the elections and who will decide this presidential election. it may not matter to the 40% on either side of the base but at 20% in the middle it does matter. second, in ours business we ha something called third-party validation and newspaper can be still great third-party validaters. i know what you're saying about takeovers but "the wall street journal" has called out republicans on incorrect statements. i was at a debate yesterday, and i said the effective corporate tax rate was 17%. someone said that's wrong. i said it was published by "fortune," study of the 2,000 biggest corporations. do you think "fortune" is -- >> that's great point because it c queues s up the situation. if you were an evil jegenius wh wanted to control the minds of the america

't working." there's plenty more. ed rendell, former governor of pennsylvania and msnbc political analyst and john fehery is a republican strategist. thank you, gentlemen. john, are the criticisms accurate from a political partisan point of view? are they hitting the truth about what romney's been caught doing here? >> well, absolutely. first of all, they weren't accurate. of those 70 million americans that don't pay federal income tax, 42 million work. and many of them work in two or three jobs and make less than $19,000. can you say, chris, those people don't accept personal responsibility, working two or three jobs just to feed their families? they're inaccurate, insensitive, almost callous in disregard for the american people. it is just a stunning statement. and those commentators among the republican party got it right. i mean, i'm not sure it's retrievable at this point. >> let me go to john. john, as a political partisan, do you believe what is said by the smart people in the party is accurate, not whether or not they should say it, but is it accurate about romney? >> let me say t

governor ed rendell, now an nbc political analyst and thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thank you, rev. >> governor rendell, let me go to you first. do republicans have a lot more at stake than just mitt romney in this election? >> there's no question. first of all, if mitt romney loses badly, the tea party will put a spin on that saying that he wasn't a true conservative, he wasn't one of us. you can't test our strength until one of us runs for president. but the fallacy of that argument is going to be in the senate and in the house. in the senate, listen to the states where the republicans are in danger of losing senate seats. missouri, indiana, north dakota, arizona, and nevada and maine. >> right. >> six states where tea party candidates won the primary and in indiana, if richard luger had beaten in the primary, there would be no race in the fall. the democrats would have no chance. but because tea party candidates prevailed in that state, there's a chance that -- five of them would be pickups. clair mack kccaskill who everyo assumed was dead. >> based on current

of the things i wanted to repeat to you is something ed rendell, former pennsylvania governor, a democrat, said about your campaign. the only reason they're up anyway is not because of anything great they did on offense or defense, but because the other side keeps making mistakes. the implosion is like monthing to do with the obama campaign really, so they can't afford to lay back at all or it will depress turnout. his point was you all are being entirely too cautious. >> i don't think that's true. i appreciate governor rendell. the fact is we've had a strategy that we've executed from the beginning. i think it's been effective. ultimately, we're ahead because the american people -- we're ahead, candy, because the american people believe that this president has many his mind and in his heart the middle class and how to rebuild an economy that works for the middle class in this country and that is fundamental in what they're looking for. i look at this debate. that's what we talk about. >> do you really think that americans believe that? if you look at right track, wrong track, many believe we'r

analyst, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. the unofficial governor of "now." always great to see you. i just did a long laundry list of exactly how this attack by the romney campaign is patently false. how much longer can they keep this up, and how can the democrats and specifically team obama better push back on this notion? >> well, i think what you just did was terrific and i think we need to do that in prime time on one of the nights in the three nights of the convention we're going to have, because this ad is starting to resonate a little bit and it is total lie. as you said, the key operative part of the ad, of the requirement is it requires an increase in work requirement by 20%, not stay the same, not a decrease, but an increase. this has been attacked by romney and ryan and notice they didn't actually attack it in their convention speeches. even ryan, who lied several times in his own speech, and i don't know if you saw it, congressman ryan was just caught in a lie about his time in the marathon. he said he did it under three hours, when truth be told, he barely did it u

all registered voters, the president's lead is six points. joining me is governor ed rendell who was leading pennsylvania through that transition from "w" to obama and douglas brinkley. if you think about where the country was headed in the final months of the bush administration, there's no question we're on a better path. five years ago the dow closed above 14,000 before heading south. it closed around 9,600 on election day 2008 before bottoming out about 6,500 in may of 2009. since then et cetera steadily climbed to a little more than 1,000 today. the highest in almost five years. that's reassuring to any american with retirement money in a 401(k). private sector job growth is up. the country was haem rajjing more than 800,000 jobs a month at the end of bush's term. as you can see in red. since march of 2010 the country has consistently added jobs month after month. the unemployment rate you can see here was climbing throughout 2008 under bush. with president obama in office it's been moving down from a high point of 10%. a majority of americans still blame george w. bush for

governor of pennsylvania ed rendell and republican strategist phil musser here at the table. welcome both. phil, first to you. >> >> sure. >> there has been so much criticism. we see the criticism from peggy noonan i cited, you saw what scott brown had to say, linda mcmahon, republican senate candidates in blue states are running as fast as they can away from what he said at that fund-raiser about the 47%. >> well, look, i think the governor himself said the words were not artfully comprised and composed. mitt romney will be a president for 100% of the country. he has a big vision to do it. it's been a tough week and a half of process stories for the campaign, but, you know, as we go forward we have to remember we're right in this race. we have 48 days to go, a lot of really big important events, chances for governor romney to outline a very clear, distinct vision and in some ways the brouhaha sharpens the choice, confronting the country. polling suggests this is going to be a big question election, big questions about the direction of the economy, big questions about job creation, big qu

of showing the public? joining me now is former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, now an nbc news political analyst. krystal ball, the cohost of "the cycle" here at msnbc. and david k. johnston, tax expert and author of "the fine print." thank you all for joining me tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> now, david, i just went over the basics of what the returns show, but you found a clue in his accountant's press release about what he's not sharing. it says, "in each year during the entire 20-year period, the romneys owed both state and federal income taxes." owed, not paid. why is that important? >> the word is very important because, among the possibilities the word owed raises is there was an audit that resulted in a large payment of tax later because they underpaid the tax, an amended tax return by the romneys, or an obligation they didn't pay for some number of years. so i wrote the campaign and asked them -- they know that this statement's going to be very closely scrutinized, and this is, after all, a verb. why didn't they say paid? and the short answer that i got back was not answering
